    export to Excel: corrupt-repair error

    Shep _

      I recently used a pre-existing model against a more current report.

      I did tweak the model slightly in adding a column and reordering the columns display.

      I exported to '.xls' normally.

      When I opened that '.xls' I got an Excel Corrupt-Repair error.

      It said data was so badly corrupted it could not recap the issue.

      But, it finally did repair-save the resulting exported data.


      Are there typical causes or things to consider for this type of issue?


      *EDIT: This happened using another model to which I did not make changes.


      *EDIT: helpdesk suggested I change settings:


      Export and Clipboard

      XLS Files: Excel 97+ (Monarch V8) *instead of V9
